"All the Dead touched did not turn to gold."

Oh dear Wordsmith, ought that read " Not all the Dead touched turned to gold"? Surely some of what they touched turned gold, so to speak.

Never a Dead Quinn did I hear that did not make me dyspeptic.

Well spotted, Mr Earle. I ought to refrain from posting whilst outside of the best part of a bottle of wine. Mistakes creep in to the deathless prose. I'll have a word with Master Tell and ask him to put you down for one of his legendary credenzas.

But you know, thinking about it, I'm wondering which non-original songs covered by the Dead actually were the gold standard versions of those songs. What songs did they do that were better than anyone else's take?

I'm struggling here - help me out!

NFA - the version the Band and Crickets did was far better; the Rollings Stones version was better, Steve Hillage was better. Sometimes longer does not mean best.

Morning Dew - Tim Rose

I Know You Rider - Hot Tuna

Death Don't Have No Mercy - Reverend Gary Davis

GDTRFB - Maybe give you that one...

NFA - No one comes close . When on , GD were fiery , tribal , and sexual .

Morning Dew - I just listened to Tim Rose , as well as many others ( Allman Brothers ) through the years . Bonnie wrote a darn good song . GD are the best .

IKYR - that's a difficult one . Push ?

DDHNM - it's a tough call , but you guys are right .

Couldn't find that one... but this might hit the mark:

The Butter Battle Book tells the story of a land where two hostile cultures, the Yooks and the Zooks, live on opposite sides of a long curving wall, fairly similar to the Berlin Wall. The Yooks wear blue clothes; the Zooks wear orange. The main dispute between the two cultures is that the Yooks, who live on one side of the wall, eat their bread with the butter-side up, while the Zooks, who live on the other side, eat their bread with the butter-side down. The conflict between the two sides leads to an arms race, each competing to make bigger and better weapons to outdo the other, which results in the threat of mutual assured destruction.

Yes, I know Tweetle Beetles. I always get a standing ovation after Fox in Socks.

Always remember, Luke Luck likes lakes and Luke's duck likes lakes. Luke Luck takes licks of lakes duck likes. Luke's duck takes licks of lakes Luke likes.

And, Moose juice, not goose juice is juice for a moose and goose juice, not moose juice is juice for a goose.

If I want the world to know what a really neat guy I am, how much I know, what amazing wine I drink, the amazing places I've been and what incredible activities I partake in during my spare time, I can think of no better place to do it.

Seems to me we all thump our chests time to time, and it doesn't bug me much. Maybe because you all suck so bad when compared to the awesomness that is me.

I'm always blown away by his simple, straightforward technique and amazing singing.

Some of their takes on country/folk/blues standards sound better for modern ears, just don't know if you can call them gold standard versions: Big River, Mama Tried, Viola Lee, BIODTL, Big Railroad Blues... and while we're here, just got to love Ain't It Crazy (The Rub) if if not gold standard.
